Organised by the National Arts Council, this year’s Got to Move will be held from 7 to 23 October, once again putting the spotlight on Singapore’s vibrant and diverse dance community. GTM 2016 will offer a wide selection of dance-related activities at various locations across Singapore. There will be almost 150 dance programmes and activities including showcases, workshops, talks, games and exhibitions, offered free for the public.

Unlock and Roll
The Hidden Good
23 October 2016, 11am to 3pm
Bedok Town Square
Social enterprise, The Hidden Good, will bring a dance activation event to the heartlands to encourage people to dance. Groups of participants will carry out dance related activities in order to ‘unlock’ freebies from the surrounding booths. The larger the group, the more freebies participants can unlock. Encouraging strangers to get to know each other and work together to complete the activities, Unlock and Roll aims to foster the community spirit especially with the event held in the heartlands. It is also an experiment to find out: Will people band together to unlock more free items? This would be perfect for everyone to bring their friends and family to participate together!
